2017 Record Store Day List

Here is our Record Store Day list for RSD17. Titles are alphabetical by artist or artists last name. We ordered heavy this year and with the nature of limited releases, we were shut out entirely of some records or we didn't receive anywhere close to what we ordered on others. A few of the possible hot ticket items have a numeral in parenthesis (2) for the amount we have it stock.

Open promptly at 8am. Please form a line down Spring St going south and once we open at 8am, please enter in an orderly fashion (as you always do, thank you) and the line will continue around the center aisle of preowned records. To begin with, we will let 5 people at a time to promptly choose their records and then proceed to the counter to pay. Please.... just to expedite the initial rush, know what you are looking for, they'll be in ABC order in the rack. Also, you may only purchase ONE RECORD of the SAME TITLE. Example: If you want Prince "Little Red Corvette", you can only buy ONE. If you wanted one for a friend, they'll have to get one on their own. This is in the spirit of RSD. Thanks.

We'll have treats throughout the day, free swag (while supplies last) coffee from Blue Box Cafe, and later in the day, cupcakes from Herb's Bakery!

A few notes (most of you know the drill), we will open promptly at 8am (maybe a few minutes before), please enter in an orderly chill fashion. Go through the store towards the back and make a loop back towards where the NEW RELEASES are. The RSD items will be in organized by band or artists last name. Please know what you are looking for so we can get everyone through in a prompt manner. This is not the time to text your friend if they still want a title if you are standing in front of our RSD record rack! Dig? Of course, you may buy multiple items, but just one TITLE of each per person. No, you can't buy a copy of Bob Dylan Albert Hall for your friend.

Greetings and upcoming holiday greetings! In addition to Record Store Day in April, did you know that there is a Black Friday Record Store Day edition? It's not quite the blockbuster that April's RSD is, but it's pretty cool nonetheless. We're a participating store and we'll have our list posted no later than November 25th, 2016.

We look to get some pretty sweet titles! We'll post the list on this blogspot page, on our website Rediscover Records, and on our Facebook page. Look for us to tweet the link out as well.

We'll OPEN on Record Store Day Black Friday promptly at 8am and stay open until at least 7pm. Look for complimentary coffee, sodas/bottled water, and treats.

If you're visiting us after being directed to do so on our sometimes-not-so-gadget-friendly-website, we're an indie record shop located in historic downtown Elgin at 9 S. Spring St. Our building dates to the 1800s!

Here's our regular hours
Monday 12pm - 6pm 
Tuesday -Saturday 11-7pm
Sunday 12pm - 4pm

Saturday, June 18, 2016

Welcome to Summer Fun at Rediscover Records! Our hours will remain the same throughout the summer. They are listed in our bio, but we'll post them here too!

Monday: 12pm - 6pm
Tuesday: 11am - 7pm
Wednesday: 11 - 7
Thursday: 11-7
Friday: 11-7
Saturday: 11-7
Sunday: 11-7

John and Paul appear to be enjoying "Freewheelin' Bob Dylan"

We will be closed on July 4th in observance of Independence Day. That's the "Day", not the film!

Look for extended hours on First Fridays of the month when there may be downtown Elgin activities going on. We welcome buskers in front of the shop. Busking rules in downtown Elgin are pretty relaxed but they do need to be observed. Elgin Busking Guidelines

The Art and Soul Festival will be on August 6th and 7th and is a great event for downtown Elgin. We'll be OPEN that weekend with possible live entertainment in front of our shop or in-store. Stay tuned!

Please follow us on Twitter @RedscvrRecords, Instagram @rediscover_records and "Like" us on Facebook for very up-to-date notes on new releases, brand new preplayed items to the shop, and live music in the shop! Share your photos and hashtag us #rediscoverrecords.

Until then....
